Dressed Up Mac and Cheese Soup


This is a thick and heart warming Soup. Really it is has more of a Stew Quality. After a bowl of this you won’t even remember the color of that stupid car, what it was you were waiting in line for, you don’t even like that item that they don’t have your size in, if you had more money in your account you would just spend it, kick off the shoes and go barefoot it’s better that way anyway. So whip up a batch and serve it to the whole family and I guarantee you won’t have a grumpy grouse for 2 or

1 pound ground beef
1 cup onion dices
1 tbs chili powder
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
salt and pepper
2 1/2 cups milk
1 14 oz can chicken broth
1 can condensed Cheddar Cheese Soup
1 1/2 cups elbow pasta
1 1/2 c Cheddar Cheese
(I added a touch of yellow food coloring to help boost the color for the photos)
brown and drain the ground beef (I always salt and pepper my meat while it is cooking for a layering of flavors) In a stock pot saute the onions in 2 tbs olive oils for approx 5 min add the beef in add the chili powder and the cumin pour in the milk and add the Cheddar Cheese Soup mix in the pasta and bring to a boil stirring frequently reduce to a simmer and cover with a lid cook approx 5-7 min until pasta is tender but not done mix in the Cheddar Cheese and cook approx 5 min more till all is melted and combined and the pasta is cooked. Garnish with the greens of scallions or chives. A dollop of salsa would be good also
